A diary of my mothing activity covering highlights and photos from my moth trapping activities. Mainly Norfolk (UK), occasionally beyond. I may mention other wildlife sightings here, especially insects, but for birds see my birding diary.

Dark Chestnut before the snow

Seems I forgot to post this having drafted it a fortnight or so ago...

Since my last post I had 2 Early Moths (one each on 10th and 11th).  On 13th I drove home from work in 1.5 degrees of cold and woke up to snow falling.  I didn't expect anything in the trap but there was this Dark Chestnut.

Dark Chestnut, North Elmham, 13th January

The snow did put a stop to moth activity though and I didn't record any more moths until this week.
